Q : I am in my 8th month of pregnancy. Following persistent itching and on advise by my doctor I tested very high SGPT/SGOT levels. SGPT level is 221 and SGOT is 300. My Bilirubin is 1. I have been advised to take Udiliv 300mg twice daily. Would like to know if it is ok to have such medication and how serious may be my present condition and effect on my baby. Is there any need for premature delivery? Any precaution I may need to take and any possible risks, as I am extremely tense about the situation. Many thanks in advance to advise.
Both your SGPT and SGOT levels are elevated to a level that is serious. This indicates liver disease, and can be see in gall stones or in fatty liver. In medical terms this is called obstetric cholestasis. Udliv is given to improve liver health by reducing cholesterol based gall stones. It is safe for use in pregnancy. In our clinic we do not allow the pregnancy to continue beyond 37 weeks. The reason is that obstetric cholestasis has an increased risk of still birth. You need follow-up blood tests to assess the status of the liver enzymes.
